political figure in america who is anything remotely like that. michael bloomberg. new york city's mayor. he's an ex-republican and ex-democrat. he's now an independent. he's in his third term as the highly visible mayor of america's largest city. before it happened today, nobody expected michael bloomberg to make an endorsement at all in this year's presidential race. that's mostly because he said he wouldn't. back in june mr. bloomberg made sure to be overheard telling people at a party in new york city he intended to remain publicly neutral in this year's presidential race. but then today he didn't. in the midst of this city's ongoing and complicated and exhausting and heartbreaking and painstaking response to this unprecedented storm, the mayor of new york city published this 17-paragraph endorsement of president obama. the fact that nobody knew it was coming and that he said he wouldn't make an endorsement just made it that much more important. as did the fact it was not at all clear if he was going to make an endorsement the guy who he would endorse would be president obama. i mean, mi

that staten island was hit the hard est of all the areas of new york city. >> when you look at the geography of it it is the most exposed and direct ocean exposure up there and what i have been wondering about. was it a matter of us getting the tv cameras down there in order to get the attention that media resources were distributed in lower manhattan and elsewhere. but it seems like the media got there before government help started focusing obthere. when you have media and senators together. they bring along the media and i think having them come out here and pointing the spotlight on what we have been seeing for the last few days first hand got people's attention. and people realized how really bad it is out here on staten island and i think it does. the media in the last couple of day days in other areas of the region how bad it is i think today we have seen the results of that coverage just this morning. we now have red cross out here. the national guard has a presentation out here as of tonight. so, it has had a positive impact shining that spotlight on staten island and what we are go

hoboken clearly from the west side of new york city. and as of last night, the mayor told us, there were as many as 20,000 people, of the population 50,000 people in the city, there were as many as 20,000 people still stranded in deep, impassable, and increasingly polluted floodwaters. the national guard did get to some of those people, starting late last night and into today. we'll have more about that very dramatic situation in just a moment. the national guard also arrived this morning in moonachie, new jersey, where the storm surge swamped the town very, very quickly. people in all sorts of housing in moonachie were caught unaware and trapped, but particularly folks in mobile homes had a very difficult time there. members of the national guard also rushed to the assistance today of new york city' bellevue hospital, which has been running on generators ever since the lower half of manhattan lost power monday night, when sandy came ashore. 17 million gallons of water flooded bellevue hospital's basement. after that shot we showed you last night of hospital employees making a human chai

amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those who drive into new york city, the lines at city bridges stretched for miles yesterday, enough to make you turn around and just stay home. it's simply not worth it. it will take all day to get in in some cases. in an effort to ease gridlock inside the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan to have at least three passengers for the rest of the week. there are checkpoints set up on the way into manhattan with cars not meeting the three-person rule, those cars turned away. and you're only beginning to make your way into new york if you're lucky enough to find gas for your cars. about 80% o

ago aaa reports nearly two-thirds of all gas stations in new york city and new jersey are shut down. the federal government took new action, though, today in the past several hours to get more fuel into the communities. with gas lines throughout the region stretching for miles, the department of homeland security has eased restrictions on foreign flag oil tankers. jim cantore has more for us on this problem. >> hey, tamron. this is what i would call an orderly gas line, even though it's packed, it's orderly he. people are lined up to each pump, and they filled the tanks with tangers that came in here. this is a nice supply of gas here at the vince lombardi truck stop. back towards the west, you can see here this gentleman, this police officer is actually directing traffic coming in from the exit into which line they should get in. as we show you where that line is, it travels all the way back up around to the turnpike. last night we understand this line was all the way out into the turnpike, which creates a dangerous situation there. so this is pretty good. you have about an hour an

. >> new york cannot be understood aside from this geography. indeed, no city could. be new york more so that almost any city in the river. because here you have what's really a natural location for a great city. it's probably one of the three greatest harbors in the world. and what's key is that at the very heart of new york is an island, manhattan. so that the indians, who were not in most places in the united states, in the early 17th century, were on the island of manhattan. because it was a natural location for a great city. >> that's a clip from the beginning of the definitive documentary about new york city, rick burns' "new york," a documentary film. as a natural location for a city, new york was sociologically and politically shaped by countless waves of new immigrants. but fundamentally, new york has always been a city shaped by water. the long, skinny island of brooklynn and queens to its east, staten island five miles south of long island. and the bronx, the only part of new york city on the american mainland, itself surrounded by water on three sides. if this week's megastor

from demosthenes plaza. we'll be right here in rockefeller center in new york city from now until election day and through the results night on tuesday. we're going to have more on that in just a moment. but first here's what's happening right now. it is a sprint to the finish, a huge weekend for both campaigns. president obama and mitt romney crisscrossing the country in a blur of nonstop events. we have two reports, nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire today with mitt romney and nbc white house correspondent kristen welker is in house with president obama. we're going to start with the president, who is making four campaign stops in four different states. kristen welker is not campaigning. but she's making those four stops in four states, she is in mentor, ohio. kristen, good morning to you on this busy day. the president showing the importance of that state by coming back again today? >> oh, absolutely, alex. good morning to you. look, it is no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this is really the cornerstone of his midwest firewall. if
are going out of their mind, out of patience, not only for the tough situation but form new york city detective bo dietl says a difficult situation if authorities do not help those whose temperatures are about for burst. you look to be in a separate world? >>guest: they are patting each other on the back. i have people on staten i'll, new jersey, on long island, my son if law's house, washed away. people living with no houses and people in staten island, crying with no water. be real. these people need help. we should mobilize our police department. get them over to staten island. there are only cops and firemen, maybe that is the problem. my problem is i am getting the calls each day, people are crying, why isn't anyone doing anything in now we don't care about that, we are going to have a marathon on sunday? something is wrong with somebody. this is ridiculous. guys who are retired say they call the special number and they are as the parade route on sunday for crowd control. they want to help people. you ought to find more bodies in the houses, with freeport and the rockaways. peopl
like i have never experienced in my life in new york city. it's something that has been missing on the streets of new york during the storm. they were empty, but today with public transportation shut down, and the crane disruption, commuters sat for hours and hours and hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic. we ran into a lot of trouble ourselves as we tried to get to hoboken. it took us a half hour to move two blocks and another two plus hours to get to hoboken which is five miles away. hopefully this will make the commute easier for some, tomorrow parts of the new york city subway will reopen which is miraculous because the pictures you're seeing, that's still the case in some parts of the system but they've managed to open other parts. it's an incredible testament to new york. still to come, coming to the rescue, i spent the day with the national guard in hoboken, new jersey, going door to door helping people from their homes and governor cuomo of new york visited what's left of a queens neighborhood torched by a massive fire. residents tried to come home for the first time and fo
" steve moore is here with all of the facts. >>> thanks but no thanks. new york city mayor bloomberg tls president obama, not to visit the big apple after the storm. i say thank goodness. but one of my guests says bloomberg is way out of bounds. he is here to disagree with me. even when they say it's not, it is always about money. melissa: first after a two-day hiatus, let's look at market headlines. wall street swung back into gear on the first day of trading since superstorm sandy. stocks were choppy throughout the session. they closed mixed throughout the day. dow closed down 10 points. home depot closed higher on the dow. expected demand of home and construction suppli sent shares up 2%. that makes sense. facebook shares tumbled 4%. a lockup expired on 229 million shares today. another 804 million shares will become unlocked on november 14th. >>> lots of damage to assess. the president just spoke after touring new jersey with governor chris christie today. while super storm sandy continues on its path of destruction the area northeast of pittsburgh is the latest to get hit. leaving c
is did the new york city rat survive hurricane sandy? >> please. >> all the flooding. >> they would survive a nuclear war. >> that's the thing. everyone thinks, an urban legend, there are just as many rats under, under new york, an old city built on top of, all of the sort of, the different layers of new york. they think there is one rat for every person. which would make 8 million rats. don't think there are 8 million rats. >> disgusting. >> i remember growing up, taking the 14th street, l train. they're not afraid of you. walk up to you. look at you. run along the third rail which is, supposed to electrocute them, does nothing to them. >> everywhere in the subway. what did the story say? did they survive this? >> some didn't. majority did. >> good thing maybe some of the babies washed out. took out a younger generation. some of the ones that were n nesting, got drowned. they'll make it no matter what. this weekend. most people half a chance to relax, cope with what is happening. may want to look for a new cocktail, something, different, new. jack daniels has a thing for you. a whi
, what you get, wow, look at this line. speeding it up now, northern new jersey outside of new york city. it just goes on and on and on. fortunately things should get better at some point. try telling that to somebody who runs out of gas while waiting in line to fill up. and here you have a picture of a guy in new jersey who had to siphon what little gas he had out of his car so he could fill his generator. keep in mind, sandy effects people across 17 states. along the coast, there is destruction on a scale that this region has never before witnessed. four and a half million homes are still without power as fox reports tonight. and now the latest estimate for the storm's economic damage? a staggering $50 billion. that would make sandy the second costliest storm trailing only virginia. the federal government is feeding hundreds of thousands of victims who in many cases no longer have homes. >> fema worked with our national guard. i'm going to join them now in bringing 1 million meals to new york. >> shepard: a warm meal in a region where it is now november and temperatures are dropping fa
